I received a report over e-mail and it is a read only document. I need to
make corrections and change formating. How do I change a read only file to
one I can work on?

Tools, Options, Security

You can remove the "read-only" feature.

Save the file to your hard disk. Using Windows Explorer, find the file.
Right click, select Properties, change the attributes.

If the document is restricted (by settings in the Restrict Formatting and
Editing task pane in Word 2007 or the Document Protection task pane in Word
2003), you should be able to get rid of the protection by inserting the file
(via the Insert File dialog box) into a new file.

To display the Insert File dialog box:

- In Word 2007, click Insert tab | Object | Text from File.

- In Word 2003, click Insert | File.

Ask the sender to send it without edit protection or to let you have the
password.

Is this a TRIAL version of Office that has either expired or you haven't
activated?
